OK, until we have the photos, here is what we have to go on...

...it is going to be almost all carvings and polynesiana....a garage tiki bar. To the extent that there is any particular theme to the place, it is coconut rum. ...considering some Aussie-related names...I am considering variations on Rama Niu [means coconut rum or rum and coconut...Pele-tempting names might not be ideal...Tamarama sounds like a very coolaceous place to be, and a good inspiration....the tiki bar being about 15 feet from my wife's spa/hot tub...Tahiti is a nice point of reference, however, since I try to serve a selection of Pacific island rums, including one from Tahiti, Noa Noa...

First of all, I like Rama Niu a lot and I also Like Noa Noa. Definitely don't dismiss those without some consideration.

However, to keep the conversation going, it seems the key elements are as follows - garage bar, coconut/rum, no fire, Pacific Island/Oceania influence, nearby hot-tub.

Given that every bar has booze, I figured best avoid names that directly include rum or booze in general.

Given the initial mention of an Aussie influence, I did think of New Zealand as a fellow southern-hemisphere, english-speaking booze-loving country, but with the added benefit of having the native Māori to provide polynesian inspiration. (disclaimer before the Aussies get all riled up - I do know that there are vast differences between Aussies and Kiwis and even more so their respective countries). Anyway, I chose Māori as the language to use.

Given the aversion to fire names and the fact that you have a hot tub near the bar, water is obviously important. The hot springs of Rotorua are a very well known and spectacular place in NZ. I immediately tossed out anything including Rotorua since it sounds like Roto Rooter to me, which is not appealing. However, one Māori phrase for hot springs is waiariki.

Now that we have a descriptive element, a location seemed logical. Without pictures, it is not clear how much your garage will still look like a garage after the transformation, but assuming there is still a bit of garage in there, the Māori word is karāti. If not, we will have to keep thinking.

There you go - waiariki karāti - the Hot Springs Garage.

It does have one advantage on the net; it will be the first reference that comes up any time someone googles or otherwise looks up the word.

I might want to add an A at the end; make it sound at first glance [okay, mixed sensory input] like "capybara", the English word for chiwito.

I agree "Copolygara" does kinda sing. :thumbsup:

You can also create a great backstory about a mythical beast from down under called the "Copolygara"!

I'm leaning toward "Loud Shirts and Lama Niu". I don't know Hawaiian grammar at all, so I son't know whether "lama niu" is closer to "coconut rum" or "rum & coconut", but either way it reflects my menu choices and ambiance. The full name, besides including my unversal sartorial bent, pays homage to my other favorite trop rock or Caribbean rock artist, one who is not enough on the public radar to annoy the purists.

Howdy. I know some hawaiian, its closest to coconut rum, as and would be "lama a me niu", since, as far as I've encountered, theres no R in hawaiian.
